Last week I opened my BU office to find a gift box of cookies on my desk. There was no note attached, no signature card, nothing identifying the giver. Just a box of fancy decorated cookies. I asked around but no one knows who delivered them to my office. No one has called or emailed to ask “how were the cookies?” I assume the giver is female; it is unlikely–not impossible, of course, but unlikely–that a male would give me a box of heart-shaped cookies. I assume they are benign, yet I’ve yet to eat one.
Would anyone like a cookie?
